If I don’t think my Crohn's doctor is right for me what should I do?

ANSWER

If you don't think your doctor is right for you, you can look for another one. Your insurance provider, regular doctor, friends, or the American College of Gastroenterology may be able to help you find someone else who specializes in treating Crohn's.
